Welcome to Blessed Brown Wren. This is my blog where I share how God is working in my life.
My name is Kelly. I am a wife, mother, grandmother (the grandlittles call me Honey), and most importantly, a child of God.
My jobs include running my own business as an Organizing Coach and working in the admin department of the Children’s Ministry at our church.
How did the name Brown Wren come about? Well, years ago my Hubs started calling me his “Little Brown Wren”. You see, a wren is a busy little bird that loves to build a nest anywhere and in anything (just like me). A wren can be a bit noisy (like me) and it’s rear end tends to stick out (I added that part – not Hubs). I’m not a brightly colored tropical bird with a beautiful song, but rather a small, little backyard bird with a sweet song to sing – and a whole lot of nesting to do. My other blog, tidybrownwren.com is my place to share homemaking, organizing, cleaning, and healthy living tips. This blog is a place to share how God is blessing my life by getting me out “beyond the nest” and into the bigger things He has planned for me.
Over the past 10 years, I’ve had some pretty complicated physical problems. In 2011 I had a kidney transplant because of the failure of my kidneys due to inherited kidney disease (Medullary Cystic Kidney Disease). Two of our three children have it also.
In 2018, due to the immunosuppressants I took for the transplant, I developed a rare peritoneal cancer that resulted in the removal of many abdominal organs. Needless to say, I don’t take my health lightly and I feel blessed to be a walking miracle of God’s grace.
I hope you’ll join me in learning about “Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen. ” Ephesians 3:20-21 NIV
Hi Kelly! I am Gloria Watson also a child of God. I am a wife, mother and grandmother as well. I love the word grandlittles. My grandlittles call me abuela. Spanish for grandma. I found your blog when I was looking to study the idea of preparing my mind for action as stated in 1 Peter 1:13. I am grateful for your words and presence. I am also a Pastor’s wife going through a rough season. I feel as though finding you is a gift from Jesus. It is difficult to find someone I can talk with. I was able to connect with what you were sharing on how to prepare your mind to action and I am grateful. Thank you for sharing.
Hi Gloria. I’m sure your grandlittles are blessed to have you as an Abuela. Thank you for reading my blog post and taking the time to respond. My blog is a way I can share what God is doing in my life. I’m so glad God spoke to you through this post. It is something I am constantly being reminded about – renewing my mind and preparing it for obedience and action. I just got home from the hospital after having my second 16 hour surgery for cancer. I’m struggling but your comment really brightened my day and reminded me that God’s not finished with me yet.
Hi Kelly! Thank you for your faithful words of encouragement. I pray, Jesus I lift your sheep to you. Would you heal her wounds? Would you hold her close so that the beat of your heart calms hers. Would your peace be hers as she pushes through this rehab time. Give her patience for herself. Give her continued conetment that is her gain. May she hear the song you sing over her and may it produce joy to strengthen her in these days. I ask this for the glory of your Name Jesus and the mercy of your servant. Amen.
